    Here is a good one:
    http://www.bodyrecomposition.com/fat-loss/why-big-caloric-deficits-and-lots-of-activity-can-hurt-fat-loss.html

    It's called "why big caloric deficits and lots of activity can hurt fat loss" but we may never know why, we just know that it does:happy:

    The Final Nail in the Cardio Coffin can still be found here:

    Those t-nation links are not working anymore.

    THANKS!!!! This is making me rethink my exercise plan completely.
    Is it still efficient to do some elliptical if we pick the program that alternates low and high resistance?

    wazert, I think you are talking about HIIT, which is still recommended for fat burning.

    I will definitely do that next time I go to the gym. I have learned so much from reading the nerdfitness website today!! Thanks for the link!

    something to think about:
    "The Reverse Taper Diet " :

    The Theory of Fat Availability:
    •There is a set amount of fat that can be released from a fat cell.
    •The more fat you have, the more fat can be used as a fuel when dieting.
    •The less fat you have, the less fat can be used as a fuel when dieting.
    •Towards the end of a transformation, when body fat is extremely low you
    may not have enough fat to handle a large caloric deficit anymore.

    At the extreme low end, when your body fat cannot ‘keep up’ with the energy deficit
    you've imposed on your body, the energy MUST come from SOMEWHERE. This is
    when you are at risk of losing lean body mass during dieting (commonly referred to
    as ‘starvation mode’). This happens at extremely low levels of body fat, under 6% in
    men and 12% in women [Friedl K.E. J Appl Phsiol, 1994].

    The leaner you get the less your body has to draw from and then you have to up your calories. There is no such thing as starvation mode for women over 12% body fat or men over 6% body fat.

    HOLY CRAP! This is amazing. I'm going to make my boyfriend read it. He's a runner and love it but he's also said more than once that he'd like to gain a little more muscle!

    Oh, I realized I have not added this one:
    http://www.mybodygallery.com/
    My Body Gallery is where you can look at women who post their pics with their height and weight.
    Sometimes it's a good reminder that a certain weight looks very different on different women. It might also help you to see whether your goal weight is realistic.

    I just checked out this website and it really has opened my eyes to 'Real Women'. I see what you mean about how different shaped women can look so totally different. Thanks x

    This article provided so much insight to weight lifting and the diet that should accompany it. Thank you so much for sharing this. Since I'm lifting a lot of weights, I know realize that I am eating way too little!

    Thanks for the info on Skinny Fat. I didn't realize it until now, but that's definitely the term for me! I'm within a "healthy" weight range for my height, but I'm pudgy in areas. I always thought that cardio was key, but it turns out that strength training and healthy eating habits are the answer!
